Free Movie on Art + Science

Join us for this special free screening of this recently-released, award-winning documentary.

Monday at 6:00 PM, Grand Peninsula D


Márton Orosz’s documentary film is the first comprehensive assessment of György Kepes’s animated life, which introduces him not only as a shapeshifter of modernism but also as a polymath and visionary thinker whose legacy and faith in “optical democracy” grants him a pioneering role in the history of the Art and Technology Movement.

Conference Overview

The conference on Human Vision and Electronic Imaging explores the role of human perception and cognition in the design, analysis, and use of electronic media systems. Over the years, it has brought together researchers, technologists, and artists, from all over the world, for a rich and lively exchange of ideas. We believe that understanding the human observer is fundamental to the advancement of electronic media systems, and that advances in these systems and applications drive new research into the perception and cognition of the human observer. Every year, we introduce new topics through our Special Sessions, centered on areas driving innovation at the intersection of perception and emerging media technologies. 

We are also proud to announce that IS&T is now publishing the Journal of Perceptual Imaging, the journal of the HVEI community, to publish peer-reviewed papers at the intersection of Human Vision/Cognition, Imaging/Media, and Art.

2024 Special Sessions

HVEI 2024 Banquet

The first HVEI Banquet was organized in 1998 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the conference. Since that time, the annual HVEI Banquet has become a beloved conference tradition, providing an opportunity to hear from an interesting speaker, as well as reminisce, cogitate, and speculate with colleagues in this exciting multidisciplinary field. Details are generally finalized in the late fall and a sign-up form is distributed by email, as well as posted on this conference page. There is an additional charge for this event.

Art: Perception and Cognition

Session Organizing Chair:
Lora Likova, Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute (US)

Throughout the ages, visual art has played a multifaceted historical role — from ancient cave paintings to 21st-century imagery. A focal point of interest lies in the exploration and expression of the processes of perception and cognition entwined in the creation and observation of visual art. While we effortlessly grasp the structural organization of the world around us through vision, it is only when attempting to encapsulate this information in visual artworks that the intricate mechanisms, the 'workings under the hood,' become apparent.

This session offers an exploration of the intricacies of perceptual and cognitive processes within the human brain, as investigated by artists through the ages — the precursors paving the way for today's visual and computational neuroscientists.

Visual Quality Across Displays and Viewing Conditions

This session investigates methods intended to measure/model/improve perceived image quality for electronic displays, including HDR, OLED and VR/AR displays. It particularly focuses on methods that involve models of the visual system and those that account for viewing conditions (ambient light and viewing distance). This special session is co-organized with the Image Quality & System Performance (IQSP) Conference. The committee welcomes submissions in the following areas:

  • Display as a factor of the quality of experience
  • The effect of display resolution, size, and viewing distance on the visibility of image/video distortions or overall image quality
  • The effect of ambient light and display brightness on the visibility of image/video distortions or overall image quality
  • Quantifying the quality degradation due to display distortions
  • Standards related to perceived display quality
  • Perception-motivated display algorithms
  • Display-adaptive video/image processing
  • Visual models and metrics for quantifying display quality
  • Perceptual measurements of display quality
  • Human visual perception in display design
  • Human perception and new display technologies
